The student government at East Islip Middle School hosted a fun-filled, charity 3-on-3 basketball tournament, “Hoops for Hope”, to support the Special Olympics of New York and celebrate the school’s March Madness Spirit Week. In total, 101 students on 23 teams participated in the March 23 event, which raised $298 for Ronald McDonald House.
Serving as master of ceremonies was middle school teacher and basketball coach Chris Padgur, who worked tirelessly with the student government to plan the event. More than 20 prizes were raffled to attendees, and each member of the winning “Social Anxiety” team – Ahmed Abdelbaky, Thomas Boyd, Pat Collerex, Cody Goldsmith and Christian Hard – received a $10 Applebee’s gift card.
